Eucerin DermoPurifyer Cleansing Gel Pump

For impure & acne prone skin 400ml

Eucerin DermoPurifyer Cleansing Gel is a daily gel, containing mild Ampho-tensides, for gentle yet effective cleansing.

Cleansing gel for impure and acne prone skin

Eucerin DermoPurifyer Cleansing Gel is a daily-use, soap-free and fragrance-free formula for gentle, yet effective, cleaning for impure and blemish-prone skin. Containing 6% Ampho-tensides, it eliminates excess sebum (serbboreah) while removing dirt and make-up. Its anti-bacterial properties rid skin of bacteria and inhibit bacterial reproduction and, as it is non-comedogenic, it will not clog pores.


Clinical and dermatological studies prove excellent skin tolerability and efficacy on patients with impure and acne-prone skin. A placebo-controlled study, on ninety 16-46 year old male and female patients with acne vulgaris, was conducted over three-months in 1999. The study was to establish the efficacy of Eucerin DermoPurifyer Cleansing Gel, Toner and Night Care.


  • The reduction of non-inflammatory lesions and papules was highly significant in all treatment groups.
  • Assessment of the disability index revealed that the subjective wellbeing of the subjects increased significantly.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will the Cleansing Gel remove my make-up completely?

It is a good idea to remove eye make-up, especially the water-resistant type, with a dedicated make-up remover (e.g. Eucerin DermatoClean Waterproof Eye Make-up Remover) before thoroughly cleansing skin with the Cleansing Gel.

Can I use the cleansing gel with an electric cleansing brush?

Yes, of course, but be very careful cleaning your skin in this way if you are undergoing medical acne therapy.

My skin feels tight after cleansing. Is that normal?

Tightness can be a sign of dry skin. If your skin feels tight be sure to thoroughly moisturise after cleansing. Consider using one of the moisturisers in the Eucerin DermoPurifyer range.

Is acne caused by having dirty skin?

This is a common myth but it’s not true. It is, however, important to choose products that have been specially formulated for blemish- and acne-prone skin – mild but effective cleansing gels are much more suitable than harsh soap-based alternatives.

Is acne genetic?

A genetic predisposition certainly counts. If both parents had acne in their youth there is a greater likelihood that their children will also experience acne.

I like how my skin feels after I wash for 10 minutes but that's it. Been using over a month and my skin has gotten the worse it's been and been getting large red pimples which I never got. Not sure if I want to continue.

Breakouts are under control

I love the cleanser, its very gentle and after using it i dont feel like my skin was stripped. Im currently using the adjuntive cream along with the retacynl 0.05 cream prescribed by my doctor. The adjuntive cream really helped with the dryness of my skin and helped reduce sensitivity around my mouth, nose are and under eyes. Although my breakouts have reduced, i still have hyperpigmentation and dark marks from my acne and im afraid of stopping this range cause my acne will just come back. What can i use in conjunction with the dermopurifiyer range to help with my dark marks and hyperpigmentation while ensuring that i wont aggrevate my acne?
Hi Monica,

We sincerely apologise for the length of time it has taken to respond. This was due to a technical problem on our side, for which we are really sorry.

Once your skin has cleared, we would recommend using the Eucerin Even Pigment Perfector range to address issues of post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation left by the pimples.  The product is well formulated, using a ground-breaking ingredient, Thiamidol, which gets to the root of hyper-pigmentation and is very effective in this regard.  We would recommend that you use the Day Cream, Night Cream as well as the Dual Serum.  More information on this range is available on our web-site, which you may like to browse. Thank you again for your interest in our products and for taking the trouble to post your Review.  Should you wish to get in touch with us to discuss further, please don't hesitate to phone our Consumer Careline 0860 102091, or via e-mail at ConsumerSA.External@beiersdorf.com.  

Many Thanks,

Utterly dissapointed

I purchased the entire DermoPurifyer ranger at the beginning of May and have not seen a change. If anything, my skin is even oilier and tends to breakout. At first I thought I should just be patient and give it time but its been close to 2months and still nothing.

Sara isk,

More breakouts

Since i started using the wash. New pimples started to appear. Knowing that regularly i do not experience this kind of red big pimples. I'm starting to blame the wash for this.

Dineo ,

Is it too early to expect results?

I have been using the Dermopurifung range for over 2 and a half weeks and I see no changes. My skin still breakouts everyday. Pretty much seems like products are not doing anything. How long am I suppose to wait? I’m actually considering stopping because it seems like I wasted my money. I really had high hopes.

Hi Dineo,

Thank you for your Review.  Acne is a very complicated skin condition which does take time to improve.  We would recommend that you carry on using the range, at least until you have completed your products.  In the meantime, we would also encourage you to read the detail contained in our web-site www.eucerin.co.za/acne.  This information is very pertinent and informative in respect of the acne condition and its root causes.   If you have serious concerns relating to your skin condition, we would recommend that you visit a Dermatologist to discuss possible medical intervention.  Thank you for your interest in the Eucerin brand and for getting in touch.

Many Thanks,

Eucerin ZA Team
